Hockey Fights Cancer is all about helping others. Every year, the National Hockey League does a phenomenal job at helping the cause. The campaign is as old as the Predators themselves. It started in 1998 when Predators center Matt Cullen‘s uncle, John Cullen, attempted a comeback after missing the latter part of the 1996-97 season and the entire 1997-98 season due to being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. John, a two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Pittsburgh Penguins, played just four NHL games in his comeback but he accomplished much more than he ever dreamed. His Tampa Bay Lightning club, along with the league and the NHL Officials Association joined forces to create the Hockey Fights Cancer initiative.

Blues will face Nashville backup goalie Carter Hutton

The Blues will get their second look of the season at Nashville backup goaltender Carter Hutton tonight at Bridgestone Arena. The Predators announced this week that starter Pekka Rinne will miss a minimum of four weeks following arthroscopic hip surgery. Rinne had hip surgery in May and recently acquired a bacterial infection, according to general manager David Poile. In his last...

Goalie Hutton knows the drill

If you come to Predators practices early, you’ll see a goaltender shifting his weight around the crease with a medicine ball in his bare hands under the watchful eye of goaltending coach Mitch Korn. That is Carter Hutton, Nashville’s 27-year-old backup, who backstopped the Predators to a 3-2 overtime win Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets. The goal of the drill is to help Hutton’s...

With Pekka Rinne out, Predators beat Jets 3-2 in overtime

Out of all Nashville’s offseason surgeries Pekka Rinne’s hip had to be the one with complications. Colin Wilson’s two shoulders? Fine. Paul Gaustad’s shoulder? A-OK. Gabriel Bourque’s knee? It has looked good so far. Instead it was arguably the Predators’ most important player who will miss at least a month. Rinne’s May hip arthroscopy was Nashville’s most delicate...

Rinne speaks about hip injury

NHL superstar netminder Pekka Rinne spoke to Urheilulehti, a magazine in Finland, about his hip surgery he had earlier this week. Rinne noticed something wasn't right with his hip on the plane back to Nashville after a 2-0 loss against the Minnesota Wild. After further evaluation Wednesday, it was found by doctors that Rinne had a bacterial infection in his hip that he had surgery...

Preds have to sit and stew about loss to Blues for five days

Put simply, it was a night the Nashville Predators would like to put behind them as soon as possible. Too bad they’ll have to wait a while in order to do that. The St. Louis Blues came into Music City and thumped the Preds, 6-1. The score was a tad lopsided, however, as the Preds were in most of the game. Things got out of hand late, making the loss look worse than it was. Carter...

Patten’s Plus-Minus: Winnipeg Jets at Nashville Predators

The best and worst from Nashville’s 3-2 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets at Bridgestone Arena on Thursday night. Plus Carter Hutton has appeared in 3 games for the Predators, earning a 2-0 average with an absurdly low 1.37 GAA and an absurdly high .959 save percentage.
